401 Tech Bridge Scale Up! RI Showcase


This special event is an opportunity to catch up with the participants in our Scale Up! RI program. Facilitated by Polaris MEP Commercialization Consultant, Peter Russo, each company will present their unique market position and give a short update on their business.

This is an excellent networking opportunity for participants and partners alike. Our Scale Up! cohort has been taking an action-oriented approach to solving the challenges of getting a product to market. Participants are also in the running to receive one of ten $2,000 credit awards toward prototyping with a local manufacturer.
